Bado Mapambano! BBI Diehards Hatch a New Plan

Recently the court of appeal put the last nail on BBI coffin. Among the many proposals which were found unlawful was the increase in allocation to the counties. The BBI document aimed to increase the allocation from the current 16.9% up to 35%.

Now the Council of Governors (COG) wants to ensure the allocation is increased through other means possible. The governors have announced that they would be seeking amendments through the parliament by sponsoring a bill.

Meru Governor Kiraitu Murungi stated that the recommendations on revenue allocation were beneficial to the counties and the decision made by the court of appeal trounced that. He also said other nine clauses which deal with county revenue will be included in the bill.

The governors also intend to include clauses such as the HELB loan repayment, seven years of tax relief for small businesses andward development fund.

The new push will be a new battle front against those who were against the bill.
